Structural racism
Very disappointed in the episode on structural racism. The host inserts his opinions which are only an example of how racism still exists in modern times. First, he defines racism as “use of race to make decisions about one can or cannot do or to somehow limit someone’s possibilities.” Where did he get this antiquated definition? This does not encompass what racism is at all. Second, even individual racism appears to be defined inaccurately...where is implicit racism in this conversation? Third, he seems to assume that the Civil Rights Act eradicated racism, how would he explain, then, BIPOC’s chronic experiences of racism in modern times? Fourth, the host states that the term structural racism is off-putting, because its inclusion of the term “racism” “offends” people who do not consider themselves racism. Fifth, he claims to have grown up “anti-racist.” To be anti-racist, someone must acknowledge their internalized racism AND structural racism and actively challenge this. These are only a few examples of the frustratingly obtuse things the host shares. Each of these examples reveals how racism persists in our country; that is, there are people like the host who seem to think a) it doesn’t exist because it’s “illegal”, b) that individuals are immune from implicit racism, and c) gets offended by the term “racism.”
